yes,yes yes!another brake question!

i've just changed my pads all around and my rear rotors on my s500.i blead my brakes at all corners.when 'they' say to bleed until the fluid is clear--what exactly do they mean by CLEAR.clear to me means like water yet the fluid is an apple juice colour-clear yet a touch of yellow.also,how much does the system hold?i bought a can of fluid from m.b. and it was a 26oz can.

clear probably means not brown or black, but the original fluid color which is more like apple juice as you stated. I had my mech change my brake fluid. its like apple juice color.
